pretty clever choosing a jersey number that's the inverse of height

Or 6'8" QB

Or actually 6'7" which was his combine height, probably the most accurate

Five Thoughts from Day Eight

1. Seeing Thomas get physical and involved in the run game and in goal-line work later in practice is crucial for his development. His receiving skills have been noted in this space and others during the previous six training-camp practices, but if Thomas wants to see more than just occasional work in the regular season, he'll have to block -- and block well.

2. Derek Wolfe isn't the only end/tackle hybrid up front, and the camp performance of Malik Jackson is one of the more promising developments of the summer. Jackson has a good variety of moves, and easily won his one-on-one duel with a swim move to the inside that would have collapsed the pocket quickly.
This was a good day for pass rushers, particularly from the edges. Jackson got to Brock Osweiler for what would have been a sack in full-contact play, and Von Miller sprinted around Orlando Franklin for what would have been another sack. Robert Ayers had his best pass-rushing day of camp so far, powering through left tackle Chris Clark to disrupt the pocket.
Ayers showed the same skill in one-on-one work, bull-rushing Clark back near where the quarterback would be set up. The Broncos have no shortage of speed on the flanks, especially when Miller and Shaun Phillipswork on the edges, and Ayers' power rush from the outside offers a good change of pace, and could overmatch some tight ends if he's drawn against them in the regular season.
But as well as the defensive line did in pass rushing, the offensive line mostly had the better of it on the ground, often getting a two-yard push off the snap.

4. The development of second-year quarterback Brock Osweiler continues unabated, as he continues to receive roughly the same number of repetitions in team and seven-on-seven periods as Peyton Manning, albeit with the second unit. His delivery is smoother and usually over the top, the product of thousands of passes thrown in the last 15 months since the Broncos drafted him. But occasionally he'll reach deep into his old satchel and drop his elbow a bit.
But the positives outweigh the negatives by a substantial margin. His pump-fake is top notch, and gets the defensive backs to bite. When he throws to the sideline and to the back corner of the end zone on fade routes, he's consistently delivering the football to the outside shoulder. His deep pass to Greg Orton during Thursday's practice was a thing of beauty, hitting Orton in perfect stride near the goal line.

His wing span is so great he can hand off to a tight end.

A QB sneak could net a TD from the 50 with a QB his size.

Instead of throwing, he just reaches out and drops the ball to the receiver on deep outs.

He's so tall when he is sacked he falls forward for a five yard gain.

Back to back sacks result in a first down
